Instead of driving all over town to look at various homes, your Realtor may walk you through them virtually. This is a new application for a technology developed with the military in mind. Home Buyers are accustomed to holding onto their stomachs and watching dizzy videos of properties. Recently drones have added more footage. Directing your Realtor to step you through room by room is new. Very new.
This may save some time on the part of the Buyers in terms of travel. The Realtor will still have to get to the places to set up the virtual showing. It will eliminate meeting each other in person and carpooling to locations.
Many of our Buyers are urban and accustomed to taking transit, walking or riding in their wheelchairs to meet us at various tall buildings around San Diego. So sometimes we don't even need a car for showings.
When we get into the suburbs and rural areas of San Diego this technology would be an interesting enhancement. Several of our clients are deployed or from other areas of the world. Hopping into a plane and meeting up at SAN isn't always easy.
Buyers are willing to place offers on properties that they have seen remotely to start the conversation with the Seller. Some have instructed us to make the selection without ever having seen the property. At the end of the day most Buyers eventually want to experience the property in person. In San Diego that only require sun glasses not virtual reality goggles.
